Last night was my buddy's birthday, so I threw together this little dude. Made from recycled wine crates, finished with spray poly (satin), and features three of my home brewed Magic Hat #9 clones that he loves.
Yeah, I keep threatening to make one for my deck with a cooler inside, but I haven't ever executed it.That's pretty slick. Kinda funny, because just the other day I was thinking about a custom wood beer cooler lined with foam insulation and a plastic basin. Nice job! :thumbsup:
The Magic Hat is a good choice too! (how close did you get?)
Yeah, that's my latest hobby, ha. I built the kegerator and while I was at the local home brew store picking up materials it hit me like a ton of bricks... why am I not making my own beer!?!?Slick beer tote there! It makes an awesome gift too.
I didn't know you were into home brewing. I was a home brewer for about 3-4 years. Several years after my equipment (and I had a nice setup) was no longer being used (my brewing friends moved away) I ended up trading the equipment for the Jet jointer I now have and love.
Since then, the guy I traded it to (extended family) has been making great use of it and brewing some exceptionally fine batches, of which I get to partake from time to time. It was a win-win. And the equipment (brewing equipment and jointer) didn't have to continue being unused.
I'm half tempted to steal your idea and make one to bring him next time I go see him. Have it stocked, of course, with one of his favorite IPAs. "Trade you some IPAs for a mug of your latest home brew!" That'll be my line.
Ha, yeah, the apricot finish isn't for everyone. I happen to like it, but when this keg's empty, I'll be refilling it with Fat Tire and not MH9. It's time for a break from it.Nice tote. Can't say I can stand the Magic Hat #9 though. Should have had you around to finish off that 6 my buddy and I drank 2 out of.
